Two Phase Orthodontic Treatment

If the time has come for your child to begin treatment at Elite Orthodontics, ask our orthodontists about two-phase orthodontic treatment. This is a method in which not only is the alignment of your child’s teeth addressed, but also the development of their jaw. To learn more about two-phase orthodontic treatment in Buckeye, Arizona, call our offices today and we will schedule your child’s appointment with Dr. Nathan Davis.

Two-phase orthodontic treatment consists of two treatment stages separated by a resting period. We recommend that you do not delay either of these stages, as this can lead to more invasive and potentially less effective treatments in the future.

Phase One

Phase One treatment is intended to help the jaw develop properly in order to accommodate all of the permanent teeth and ensure that the upper and lower jaws fit together correctly. Careful attention to the growth and development of the jaws during this phase of treatment can prevent many future problems. During an initial evaluation, our orthodontists will determine if early treatment is needed, and if so, when it should begin. If necessary, we will provide treatments that will help your child’s teeth and jaw develop properly so that they can avoid the need for tooth extractions or other invasive procedures.

Resting Period

During the resting period between treatment phases, the teeth will be left to develop on their own. A successful first phase creates space for permanent teeth to erupt without difficulty. Our orthodontists will monitor your child’s teeth during this time to ensure that everything develops correctly.

Phase Two

When your child begins Phase Two treatment, our orthodontists will evaluate their teeth and jaws, and provide any treatments necessary to ensure that the teeth are in harmony with each other, as well as the lips, cheeks and tongue. Phase Two is typically when the patient will wear full braces or receive other orthodontic treatment. Retainers will be used following treatment to keep your child’s teeth in their proper positions.
